The Dartmouth Big Green and Princeton Tigers meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Jadwin Gymnasium.

The Dartmouth Big Green could use a win after losing five of their last six games. The Dartmouth Big Green are averaging 71.6 points on 45.3 percent shooting and allowing 72.4 points on 46 percent shooting. Chris Knight is averaging 15.9 points and 2.5 assists while Brendan Barry is averaging 13.5 points and 3.4 rebounds. Ian Sistare is the third double-digit scorer and James Foye is grabbing three rebounds. The Dartmouth Big Green are shooting 38.4 percent from beyond the arc and 71.4 percent from the free throw line. The Dartmouth Big Green are allowing 32.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 30.6 rebounds per game. The Dartmouth Big Green have lost their last four road games.

The Princeton Tigers could also use a win to snap a three-game losing streak. The Princeton Tigers are averaging 67.8 points on 39.9 percent shooting and allowing 70.5 points on 41 percent shooting. Devin Cannady is averaging 19 points and 6.1 rebounds while Myles Stephens is averaging 13.6 points and 6.6 rebounds. Richmond Aririguzoh is the third double-digit scorer and Jaelin Llewellyn is grabbing three rebounds. The Princeton Tigers are shooting 30.1 percent from beyond the arc and 75.5 percent from the free throw line. The Princeton Tigers are allowing 31.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.5 rebounds per game. The Princeton Tigers have split their last four home games.

The Big Green are 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games. The Tigers are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 Saturday games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games vs. a team with a losing road record and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Big Green are 13-4 ATS in the last 17 meetings in Princeton and the home team is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The under is 6-1 in Tigers last 7 overall. The under is 4-0 in Big Green last 4 road games.

Both of these clubs are in full struggle mode, but it's Princeton that has the edge at home, while the Dartmouth Big Green have had little to no success on the road. Princeton has also been really profitable the last couple o weeks, including covers in five of their last seven games. I'll lay the reasonable number with the home team. 

Pick:
Princeton -5.5
